The mission of the Committee for Diversity is to study the educational and professional needs of underrepresented surgeons and the impact that its work may have on the elimination of health disparities among diverse population groups.
Increasing diversity in the health system leads to quality care that is recognized by patients and makes individuals feel valued, leading to reduced fatigue / burnout and allows the development of workforce talent. Therefore the goals of this Committee are:
-To maintain diversity and inclusion represented in all areas of the Kosova College of Surgeons;
-To commit our members to ensure that their needs are being addressed within the workforce, education and clinical care;
-To highlight best practices in surgery addressing workforce diversity, inclusion, and inequalities in health care.
